Practice Group Competition and Media
Competition law has a significant influence on corporate strategy, as both national and international regulations must be observed. Our clients from a wide range of industries attach particular importance to sustainable, future-oriented and innovative solutions that offer them flexibility and freedom. We support them in particular in extrajudicial and judicial competition law issues and disputes and in the management and development of their business.
On the one hand, we support you in setting up a suitable compliance program and in training your employees; on the other hand, we represent your company in investigation proceedings of the Federal Competition Commission and adapt your defense strategy accordingly. Our owner, Dr. Dr. Fabian Teichmann, LL.M., has a comprehensive education in the field of economics. The same applies to a large number of our selected experts. This enables us to offer you optimal, interdisciplinary advice in the areas of capital markets law, banking and finance, corporate governance, acquisitions and mergers, regulation and more. We are happy to advise you on competition law issues and on cross-border, complex transactions.
In the context of merger control, we advise you on complex matters on a national as well as multinational level. In civil and antitrust investigation proceedings, you will benefit from our comprehensive expertise throughout the entire process, be it during the initiation of an investigation, in the context of voluntary disclosures or in complaint proceedings. We also advise your company on the preparation and execution of house searches and provide you with competent support. If your company is accused of illegally exploiting a dominant market position, we will help you to solve the problem. The same applies to the development of new business models.
We are also happy to assist you in setting up, adapting and applying a tailor-made compliance program so that your company always acts in accordance with the best practices in the sector. To this end, we conduct a detailed analysis of your company's relationships with stakeholders such as customers, suppliers, other market participants and cooperation partners. We are also happy to review existing program and business models on your behalf. We undertake negotiations with competitors on your behalf and draw up contracts in the context of mergers, cooperation agreements, purchasing pools and more. In the field of intellectual property law, our experts deal with consultations and negotiations concerning cooperation agreements, procurement agreements, supply agreements, manufacturing agreements and license agreements.
We also assist our clients with questions regarding novel technologies and the expansion into new business areas in the fields of technology and e-commerce. Of course, we also represent you in all competition law proceedings before all Swiss courts.
